I couldn't save them.

April 8th, 2009 at 10:33 am

A couple weeks ago I made a concerted effort to purchase a new digital camera in a locally owned shop.

Two days ago, upon contacting them for specifics on how to redeem some free print coupons, I found out they are closing at the end of the month.

Bleh. All the Ritz Camera stores in my area are closing. Something like only 6 will remain open in the CA/NV area.

The employees were surprised but still wonderfully courteous to me. The coupon for free prints was honored as will be a coupon for a Photo Album.

In fact, the free Photo Album is a deal! A 8 1/2 x 11 twelve page hardcover beauty. Snazzy layouts and great textural backgrounds included.

It will be a Pretty Cheap Jewelry Product book! Containing example designs and types of items. Like these:






Concern #1: These are mostly 1-of-a-kind things. I have to include only those things I am able (or willing!) to reproduce. But a person seeing the catalog will not get a duplicate. Do you think that's ok?

Concern #2: Picture quality! These are taken with my old camera, and I do not have time to reshoot! The free deal must be redeemed very soon according to the staff because of the closing.

Any pictures you think are horrible?

    I think as long as you explain in some way, by title or a note, that these are simply representations of the kind of work you do, then you should be okay. I think the pictures seem to be of fine quality...very crisp images. Similar backgrounds might help...like all white, or one solid color only. Just my opinion...I'm no expert.

    Thx CCF, I'm not an expert either and an objective look is very appreciated. Excellent suggestion on the note, will do something like that!

    Pretty pictures! Do you use a light box?

    Hi BA! I have been shooting in good outdoor indirect light (shade). It's the truest, simplest, least costly method.

    I've put together a homemade light box but haven't used it much lately. It's ok for shooting inside at night when time runs out during the day or if it's windy or rainy outside. But indoor bulbs need tweaking with a photo editor later.
